If she were bigger I would worry too. I'm going to buy her nice rubber ball that's slightly larger in a week or two.
Ossie got a tennis ball lodged way in the back of his throat while we were playing ball one afternoon. It scared the heck out of me. I had to stick my fingers way down his throat behind the tennis ball to sweep it out.
No more tennis ball after that.
Lisl is still pretty small to worry about that, but I haven't forgotten what happened to Ossie.
She's been retrieving for weeks, I just never taught her to play catch until today.
